Community Service

Bloomfield College encourages and recognizes student academic excellence within and beyond the classroom. Community service is central to the educational experience of our students. From the onset of enrollment to graduation, our students discover that their active participation in community service affords them with opportunities to utilize their education, skills and talents to make profound differences in the lives of others. The support and assistance they provide to various local, national and international organizations, agencies, churches and schools represent the compassionate hearts of our students.

To enhance our commitment to student service learning, Student Affairs and CSLE has a part-time staff member serving as the  Coordinator of Service Leadership and Diversity Initiatives.  The College has also created a budget to financially support  transportation and other expenses associated with students’ expenses to engage in community service activities. Another commitment to our service learning initiatives is the Students Engaging in Real Volunteer Experiences (SERVE) Program.

Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in eight core competency areas which includes Community Orientation and Citizenship. This competency requirement represents an appreciation of communities and environments in all their diversity-local, national, and global and is connected to a sense of service, civic engagement, and social responsibility. The College is committed to its mission to prepare students to attain academic, personal and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society.
